MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Rappler CEO Maria Ressa is one of this year’s recipients of the Roosevelt Four Freedoms Award.
Ressa is being honored with the Freedom of Speech Award, proof that she, indeed, has exercised her freedom of speech all along, contrary to all her claims about suppression of her online news site’s press freedom.
OSLO, Norway (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – In 2020, the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the World Food Programme (WFP) “for its efforts to combat hunger, for its contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas and for acting as a driving force in efforts to prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict.”
Who will receive the prestigious prize in 2021?
The Philippines could very well score its first Nobel Peace Prize ever this year, if the Nobel Selection Committee decides to reprise its recognition that combatting hunger is an all-important road to peace and prosperity.
Vice President Leni Robredo has been nominated for the prize this year, thanks to her advocacy on behalf of the poor and hungry. The nomination highlighted her most recent efforts to distribute spaghetti to the less fortunate of her countrymen.
“Her spaghetti distribution shows the that little acts, no matter how they are seen as propaganda and photo ops by her critics, can go a long way to achieve world peace,” the nominated stated.
OSLO, Norway (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo and Rappler CEO Maria Ressa were nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize for their war-related efforts.
Robredo was nominated for her courageous move to right a wrong in world history. She recently revised the period of World War II from 1939-1945 to 1939-1947. “War truths are important to peace efforts “ the nomination stated.
Ressa, on the other hand, was nominated for her reporting and business efforts in the erstwhile Philippine war zone, a claim that she has courageously espoused in her defense against criminal and other charges filed against her and as well as in her attacks against the government of President Rodrigo Duterte. “Navigating the truth in a war zone during peace time is a heroism to the first degree” the nomination said of Ressa.
The duo was nominated by Parliamentarian-wanna-be and aspiring United Nations magistrate Antonio Trillanes.
